CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina coach Roy Williams was pessimistic Monday about injured point guard Ty Lawson's status for the game against No. 3 Duke.
``I don't feel real good about him playing,'' Williams said during the Atlantic Coast Conference's weekly media teleconference.
Williams said he wouldn't know Lawson's status for Wednesday night's game until after practice Tuesday.
The sophomore point guard didn't return after he sprained his left ankle early in the first half of the No. 4 Tar Heels' 84-73 overtime victory at Florida State on Sunday. X-rays showed no broken bones, Williams said.
``We won't have any idea if he will play, or how much he will play, until after practice (Tuesday) - if he can practice,'' Williams said.
Lawson's top backup, Bobby Frasor, is out for the season with torn knee ligaments. That leaves third-stringer Quentin Thomas and starting swingman Marcus Ginyard as options if Lawson can't play.
Ginyard is battling a case of turf toe, Williams said.
